What’s the perfect mix of glam and grunge? Gingham! This fab trend is all the rage for welcoming the warmer weather this Spring.
As the old saying goes, history repeats itself, and while the Gingham print is nothing new, it’s definitely making a comeback for a fresh new look this Spring.
No longer limited to children’s clothing and picnic tables, Gingham is moving from the runways to street style ever so fashionably.
Harpers Bazaar Spring 2015 Runway Report is calling it “Grown Up Gingham.” Bazaar says, “The graphic pattern gets a sophisticated makeover on ladylike skirts and layering pieces.”
Oscar De La Renta kept this look feminine and fun in his Spring 2015 show by choosing a light, Robin’s Egg blue color medium. He paired it with a flirty, white skirt adding an overall girly tone to the look. The low sneakers keep the sporty vibe while still appearing neat and tailored.
For a more menswear look, we paired our favorite Gingham tunic with black leggings and shooties. For the warmer weather, lose the leggings and pair this boyfriend tunic with a feminine skirt (like featured above) or cute cut offs.
When sporting Gingham, the trick is that less is more. Blue hues help to avoid a picnic table look while appearing chic and trendy. Gingham is also popular in grey tones, to create a more neutral look.
Whether you want to make it feminine and flirty or sporty and sleek, you can’t go wrong with Gingham. This trend is a staple for any fashionista’s wardrobe this Spring.
